‘School of Rock’ Guitarist Facing Felony Charges for Stealing Guitars

Joey Gaydos Jr., best known for playing Zack Mooneyham in the 2003 film School of Rock starring Jack Black, is facing four felony charges stemming from stealing guitars.

Per TMZ, Gaydos has been arrested four times in the past five weeks by local authorities in Florida for allegedly stealing three guitars and one amp. The guitars he allegedly stole were a blue Les Paul Epiphone Prophecy, a black Fender Stratocaster and a Gibson Les Paul gold top. Combined the guitars retail around $3400. No confirmation on the price of the stolen amp.

Gaydos has been pawning the goods after stealing them. TMZ reports that the cops say Gaydos confessed to a drug problem, but he has still pled “Not Guilty” to the charges related to the stolen guitars. Gaydos has yet to go before a judge regarding the stolen amp.
